The big turkey day is coming up! How will you celebrate? Since my son and his wife will be out of town, we are celebrating this Sunday. That means I'll have lots of leftovers to enjoy with friends on the big day.

Mmmm. Sandwich of leftover turkey on some nice thick slices of bread. ...

I'm thinking of making this for Thanksgiving.


Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Ingredients

1 (16 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


In a large bowl, mix together instant vanilla pudding mix, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Fold in the thawed frozen whipped topping. Chill in the refrigerator until serving.

Serve with graham crackers,  ginger snaps, and vanilla wafers.

Let us know how that works out, friend. It certainly is a pretty dish! Did you know that you can get whipping cream from Trader Joes in aseptic packaging, so you can have whipped cream anytime you want? It beats those aerosol things. Because of my grandchildren, I've learned all kinds of things about food.

I think I have finally perfected the dressing after years of frustration. I'm off to a feast right now, but when I get back, I'll post my findings!

Whew!  Just got back from dinner.

We had turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, corn casserole, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes,  meatballs in a sweet and savory cranberry sauce, stuffed cabbage, fresh rolls.

Then dessert was pumpkin cake, peach pie, mixed berry pie with streusel, lemon cake, and pumpkin spice fluff dip served with Nilla wafers and Ginger Snaps.

The dip was a hit, everyone loved it!

I hope your dressing turned out how you wanted!

We had grilled turkey cutlets, sweet potatoes, filling/stuffing/dressing, gravy, corn, cranberry relish, and biscuits, with shoo-fly pie with ice cream for dessert.

One year my cousin's wife included green bean casserole on the menu. I didn't get it. I still don't get it. Maybe it's just because I hate green beans.

I also don't get macaroni and cheese as a Thanksgiving side dish. I mean, I love mac and cheese, but as a side dish with turkey at Thanksgiving?  ???

Hi all!  I hosted this year.  Just Joey and I and her twin sons. 

We did duck confit this year.  So much easier than cooking a turkey. 

With rosemary scented roasted potatoes, roasted fennel, Joey's squash puree with caramelized onions, green beans with shallots, and my cranberry chutney, spicy with red pepper flakes and cardamom seeds. 

I also made an apple, cranberry and pecan crostata, served with vanilla ice cream.

A little calvados and we watched "Moonlight Mile" with a very young Jake. 

TONS of dishes to clean up!
